What Exactly Is “Moral Imagination”?

By Miri

We’re all by now too familiar with the wonderful speech that Barry gave at the Tucson 2012 Campaign Rally Memorial Service at a stadium at the University of Arizona, complete with the Jumbotron flashing “applause signs“, bizarre “memorial t-shirts” sporting a campaign motto, “Together We Thrive”, which was previously on an Obama website, circa 2008, and also on “anti-racism” t-shirts for sale at this siteContinue reading

America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution

By Angelo M. Codevilla from the July 2010-August 2010 issue <http://spectator. org/issues/ july-2010- august-2010>

As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the
leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations and
opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall
Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that
spending some $700 billion to buy the investors’ “toxic assets” was the only
alternative to the U.S. economy’s “systemic collapse.”

In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama. Many, if not most, people around them also agreed upon the eventual commitment of some 10 trillion nonexistent dollars in ways unprecedented in America. They explained neither the difference between the assets’ nominal and real values, nor precisely why letting the market find the latter would collapse America. The public objected immediately, by margins of three or four to one.

America’s Bloodless Coup d’Etat, Open Thread

Ron Ewart,   New Media Journal    May 3, 2010

Posted by Newssleuth

“The essence of Government is power, and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.” – James Madison

And it came to pass, on the 4th day of November, in the year of our Lord 2008, a cabal of devious conmen were elevated to power over all the people. Behind closed doors, under the cover of night and the veil of deceit, aided and abetted by a willing majority in a spineless Congress, most of academia and the lion’s share of the news media, they plotted the overthrow of a once-free America, from within.

There Are No Coincidences, Anymore.

by Miri

On Sunday, I opened the newspaper and came across a full-page ad sponsored by AARP, in favor of “financial reform.”  The ad claimed, “It’s time to stop the fat cats from putting your money at risk.”  The ad urged readers, “Tell your senators to pass financial reform now.”

So, let’s get this straight.  First AARP was on board with ObamaCare.  Now, they’re on board with “financial reform,” whatever that is, because just as with ObamaCare, nobody knows what’s in the bill.  Whatever.  AARP is for it.  Yeah!  You go, Obama.  Whatever you say, Dear Leader.   Continue reading

Do Fear the Reaper

by Miri

It occurred to me, while watching Glenn Beck’s expose on Marxism and the Nazis, that at least Hitler didn’t make those he murdered pay for the gas and the gas chambers. Think about it:  They’ll force us all to pay for long-term care “insurance”, but who will own and control the facilities where we will be cared for? (But not long term. Insurance, it’s not, unless that means that you will assuredly die there, in “long term care.” They must lie awake at night thinking up this Orwellian language and then laughing at us when they use it to hide what they’re really up to.)

MARCH – the Month of MARX MADNESS (Open Thread)

By Bridgette

Beware the Ides of March Marxist Madness

Julius Caesar was assassinated on March 15th in 44 BC.   The premonition of danger for him was stated as “Beware the Ides of  March.”   The Ides of March refers to March 15th and has been acknowledged every year.

Now in March, 2010 AD we are watching the assassination of our Constitution, our laws, and our country by the Anti-Americans who profess to know what is best for us because of their Leftist Marxist/Communist/Progressive ideology or whatever it is they are calling it and themselves now.

the State of the Labor Union Address

By Newssleuth

Last night Obama gave his first State of the Union Address. He spoke about how he wants to make these hard times easier for the American people. He went on and on about how he was making things better. But I wonder, how many of Obama’s plans directly benefit the labor unions that so heavily supported him in his run for president?

Bows to labor unions. In saluting the resilience of the American people, Obama specifically mentioned people “building cars and teaching kids”—both heavily unionized occupations. And his administration has been pouring money into them, through the General Motors and Chrysler bailouts and through the one-third of the 2009 stimulus package that went to state and local governments. Obama not only pays off his political debts, he gives his paymasters some psychic reward as well.

SHOCKING, DEVIOUS, AND EVIL Part I

SHOCKING, DEVIOUS, AND EVIL:

HOW THE DEMOCRAT’S PLAN FOR A
COUP D’ÉTAT WILL WORK

Part I

By Gary P.

Let me just say this, the democrat/communist party is openly carrying out a coup d’état right in front of us. I have written on many occasions how many of the provisions of ObamaCare are nothing more than a complete and total usurpation of the Constitution that will forever destroy states’ rights, and severely restrict individual rights in this country.

ObamaCare is completely and totally unconstitutional. This is pointed out, yet again, in the Wall Street Journal op-ed co-written by Orrin Hatch, Ken Blackwell, and Kenneth Klukowski:

Stimulus Bill and Progressive’s Healthcare Strategy Penned by Ex-Cons

by Bridgette

The following article was released by Big Government simultaneously with Glen Beck’s show yesterday. This is a view of the Progressive’s playbook for healthcare and how they intended to win at all costs. The writer of their playbook is Robert Creamer, a convicted felon, and the husband of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL). (Another liberal couple that do not share the same last name). Creamer penned his book in his jail cell at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. Continue reading
